How Socialists from the ’60s Primed Millennials to Feel the Bern – Ethics & Public Policy Center

Bernie Sanders and his young supporters say, “No worries, we’redemocraticsocialists.” Outsiders say, “No problem, they barely know what socialism is.” Others see Sanders’s movement as a passing response to an economic downturn.
